The FIS Alpine World Cup is bringing women’s racing to Beaver Creek’s historic Birds of Prey track, and the FIS Alpine World Cup Finals is returning to American soil at Sun Valley Resort in Idaho.

The men’s Birds of Prey race has been hosted at Beaver Creek since 1997. According to U.S. Ski and Snowboard, this year the course will once again see men’s super-G, downhill, and giant slalom (giant slalom was last hosted at Beaver Creek in 2019) from December 6-8. But, the weekend after, the women will take iconic course for the first time, holding women’s super-G and downhill on December 14 and 15.

I have a lot of great memories skiing in Beaver Creek, particularly from World Champs in 2015. It’s an iconic World Cup speed track with a best in the world course crew – the Talon Crew – and the surface is always incredible. It’s so great we’ll be closing the season at Sun Valley with Stifel Sun Valley Finals too. I can’t emphasize enough the importance of the next generation of skiers seeing and experiencing the World Cup in our country. It is so impactful and essential for the growth of our sport here at home.” – Mikaela Shiffrin

To cap off the season, the Alpine World Cup finals will be hosted in the United States for the first time since 2017. The event, taking place from March 22-27 in Sun Valley, Idaho. Only the top 25 athletes from each alpine discipline will be invited to compete, but that will surely include some Stifel U.S. Ski Team members.

Finally a World Cup Finals on home soil! I’m excited to have the Finals in Sun Valley Idaho this season! It couldn’t be in a better location with a community that values and supports World Cup skiing with the same enthusiasm as the Europeans.” – Bryce Bennett

The first Alpine World Cup Race on U.S. soil will once again be the Stifel Killington Cup in Vermont, bringing the Women’s giant slalom and slalom to the slopes of Killington. Seven other FIS World Cup events will take place in the United States next season, including three freestyle events, three freeski/snowboard events, and the ski jumping world cup.
